. massacres have taken place in businesses, law practices, malls, movie theaters, and especially schools. these massacres don't seem to stop. they continue on. columbine, virginia tech, aurora, tucson, oak creek. a common thread in these shootings is each gunman used a semiautomatic assault weapon or large capacity ammunition magazine. military-style assault weapons have but one purpose, and in my view, that's a military purpose, to hold at the hip if possible, to spray fire, to be able to kill large numbers. since the last assault weapons ban expired in 2004, and incidentally, in the ten years it was in place, no one took it to court, more than 350 people have been killed with assault weapons. more than 450 have been injured. we should be outraged by how easy it is for perpetrators of these horrific crimes to obtain powerful military-style weapons. >> again, we have been listening to senator dianne feinstein as she goes ahead to introduce the new assault weapons bill of 2013. she was the face of the bill in the 1990s. and that expired in 2004. >> joining me is congresswoman jackie speie
anders, senior legislative council at the american civil liberties union. the a.c.l.u. has filed law-suits against the government challenging the legal basis for the drone program. welcome to both of you. i want to start, seth, with the effectiveness question. how effective are drones strikes? >> i think on the one hand, drones have been effective in taking off the battle field several individuals that have been actively involved in plotting attacks against the u.s. homeland. all of them plotting active attacks and the drone strikes severely disrupted those attacks. i would also say, though, that they are not sufficient. strikes in and of themselves don't hold territory. they don't deal with the root causes of terrorism. so one should never argue-- or it would be incorrect to argue that they are sufficient to ending how terrorist dwriewps operate orinding terrorism. >> brown: do you dispute the effectiveness in taking out some of the top leaders? >> the truth is that no one really knows exactly what's going on with their effectiveness or not because this is a program that has been wr
department about american options? >> well, american options are limited by american law right now. because u.s. law pro ibt hads assisting a government or a military that came to power through a coup. and right now the malian government that we are trying to support in their efforts to control the rebels and to control the al qaeda and islamic militants in mali came to power through coup. so we can't provide them direct assistance. so u.s. law prohibits that. we're finding work arounds what that mean as secretary clinton laid out today is that by this weekend there will be military trainers in the area to train african militaries to go into mali, we'll be paying for that. we will be helping to fund the airlift to bring in a french battalion. there will be about 600 troops coming in with tanks to mali. so there are work arounds but there are restrictions that prevent the u.s. military from getting directly involved in mali. >> what can we do to support the french? >> the french have asked the united states for a number of things. the mallian government has also asked the united states for a n
a resolution, which is not a law, and doesn't change anything. it is just a resolution, a promise to do something in the future. and the way they have written it, apparently ezra, if the senate passes one, then okay, the senate can get paid. if the house passes one then house members can get paid. but the 27th amendment very simply says no law varying the compensation of the services of senators and representatives shall take effect until the elected representatives shall have intervened. this varies their compensation. and i just want to play this video, we have to do this. of what john boehner said about their respect for the constitution. the new respect for the constitution that they were bringing to the house of representatives when they took over in 2011. let's listen to this. >> i mean, gone on the days when the constitution will be ignored. in this congress, there will be clear constitutional authority required, when members file bills. >> remember that, ezra, they were supposed to file their bill and constitutional memo, saying why the thing was constitutional. >> i do remember

has failed to respond to a terrorist attack appropriately, treated as a law enforcement and diplomatic issue rather than it is the security issue that it is. at its core, this is yet another reflection of president obama's schizophrenic counterterrorism policy. the same administration that unapologetically reins down drone attacks on al qaeda affiliates in pakistan, yemen, will not use other counterterrorism resources to identify, locate and detain the terrorists involved in the death of our ambassador and others in libya. this inconsistent policy may stem from the president's hasty campaign promise to shut down guantanamo bay, gitmo, prematurely transfer detention facilities in iraq and afghanistan. in doing so the president effectively ended america's ability to detain and interrogate terrorists, depriving the f.b.i., the c.i.a. and other agencies of critical opportunities to obtain information on al qaeda networks. today, as the case of benghazi suspect harzi, has demonstrated, the united states is completely reliant on the cooperation of host countries to detain on our behalf and s

presence that permits us to pursue law enforcement objectives, intelligence objectives, military objectives, and so much more. so it's not just about us sitting around and say, you know, do we really want our diplomats at risk? it's ok, what are the equities of the rest of the government that would be effective if we decided we had to close shop because the risk was too great? i want to stress that because i don't think you can understand, at least from my perspective, how difficult the calculation is without knowing that it's not just about the state department and usaid. secondly, i don't think we can retreat from these hard places. we have to harden our security presence but we can't retreat. we've got to be there. we've got to be picking up intelligence information, building relationships and if we had a whole table of some of our most experienced ambassadors sitting here today, they would be speaking with a loud chorus, you know, yes, help us be secure but don't shut us down, don't keep us behind high walls in bunkers so we can't get out and figure out what's going on. that's the balan

to citizenship for some of those law abiding -- otherwise law abiding illegal immigrants in this country. so he's looking at sort of this overall comprehensive package, and the president and his advisors feel like they could make some movement on it in the second term. why? well, you look at who supported the president in the 2012 election. he got more than 70% of the hispanic votes. republicans realize that and you're starting to hear sort of this warming up to the idea to do something about immigration, immigration reform. and so, you know, the president had promised in his first campaign that he was going to make movement on this, did not deliver the way that some hispanics had expected him to do. they're hopeful that in his second term that can happen. >> dan lothian you just used the words warming up, and i know that you got the assignment outside of the national cathedral today and it is bitterly, bitterly cold. i want you to tell me a little bit about the warmth and love inside that cathedral. we're looking at more of the live pictures. this is an awesome event. people may forget it's an

will not stand in the way of the bill becoming law. broadly speaking, i will point to what i said, which is the president's position is we have to remove these damaging fights over fulfilling our obligations to pare bills from the process -- we have to remove them entirely, because they are not helpful to our economic growth or the middle class and they create terrible uncertainty for businesses. we can continue to engage and we will with members of congress over the need to produce our deficit in a balanced way. the president has put forward plans that demonstrate the fact that he's willing to compromise, and is willing to meet republicans halfway on these issues and he will continue to do that. but the debt ceiling needs to not be part of that, because it is terrible for the economy and seems to be bad politics. host: white house press secretary jay carney. let's hear purcellville in broken arrow, oklahoma, republican. what is your advice to republicans for the second obama administration? caller: i love c-span and i am so glad that you have this live call-in talk show from individuals
funding matters. it's my hope that we have a state authorization bill that the president can sign into law. let me ask you this question. at the time of the benghazi attacks, you indicated there was things going on in egypt and yemen and tunisia. no one could have imagined and i'm sure you did not when you took office that we would have the arab swing and the nation of what was going on in these countries. i want to ask you a question. what mr. sherman was asking. just to get the reports on what we might do as members of congress and how we might move forward with the nations so that maybe that's a way to prevent these things from happening. >> it's an excellent question and deserves a very thoughtful answer longer than the time i have. we cannot retreat on new regimes. they are very new and most of them have leaders that have never run anything. they have come from backgrounds that are suspicious. it threw them in jail and harassed themselves and they have to do work. that work requires that we stay engaged. we have to do a better job in helping rebuild the security apparatus that can be

to become law with the make-up of this new congress? >> well, rev, i've been working on these issues now for about 20 years. and we have a good coalition in the house. we've already reintroduced the magazine and we're getting ready to introduce the companion bill to senator finestein's bill. what we really need, though, is the voices of the american people to be heard. you can not underestimate the lobbying power of the nra in congress. and even my office, even though people know that i am a strong advocate for gun safety legislation, i get calls every day from nra members. and so what really needs to happen to change this debate in washingt washington, in congress, is the moms and dads, the aunts and uncles and husbands and wives of america need to call their members of congress and they need to tell them that they support this ban on the assault rifles and the ban on the assault magazines. >> well, let me tell you why, congresswoman, i think that that is extremely a feasible strategy of getting people to call it a people movement from the bottom up. look at these startling numbers that

is going to bypass congress to make the point? >> yes, and in a way that is lawful, unconstitutional. because the congress has given some of its authority to prior presidents but lawful because he is using authority they gave to him, the president can have the epadecide because it will cost us money to clean up -- fill in the blanks, sandy -- we can charge people for the clean up cost. it will cost us more money to clean up the atmosphere. we can make automobiles that are more fuel efficient, and tell the manufacturing companies how efficient they should be. neil: is that legal? >> yes, but unconstitutional, it is legal because congress lets the president have that power. but the act of transferring that power from congress where consititution gives to the president, where th the constitution keeps it away. this goes back to hitchard richard nixon, congress said sure, you make the riles. fast forward or wind it up 40 years later, to barack obama, and you have an epa, ennaging enacting rules that congress has rejected. and a president boasting about it in his inaugural address. that i

already predict some serious challenges that include spending caps signed into law in 2011 that could make the next four years extremely difficult from a governing standpoint. let's talk about it with chris wilson, a republican consultant, former executive director of the texas republican party and the president of new heights communications. kristi, to you first. candidate obama in 2008 promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. that hasn't happened. how about by the end of his second? >> well, john, i think what's important to remember is that as president obama is starting his second term, he's doing so in a remarkably strong position with high approval ratings and a great record in his first term. when he started, as we all know, the economy was in the ditch. he was able to successfully get us out of that at the point where last week the u.s. stocks closed at their highest level in five years and was able to pass historic health care legislation. by contrast, republicans have their ratings in the toilet. what that means is that there's probably -- it's going to b
